INDORE FORMER LOK SABHA SPEAKER SUMITRA MAHAJAN Statement about indore name change.
There is already Ahilya city,
while on the discussion of changing the name of Indore, it was said that Indore is called Ahilya Nagari. No need to change name. Similarly, Indore is known by the name of Ahilya Nagari. The people of Indore are likewise called the residents of Ahilya Nagari.
Know how Indore got its name, in
fact even today many people do not know that the city of Indore is not named after any Mughal ruler. Rather it is in the name of Ahilyabai Holkar’s adorable Indreshwar Mahadev (Shiva). Historians and knowledgeable people of Indore believe that the city of Indore was named after Lord Indreshwar in olden times.
In ancient Indore, the name of Indore was Indrapuri and Indore was known only as the city of Lord Indra. After this, in the early period of the Holkar princely state, Indore was named Indur and after the change of time, this city came to be called Indore. As a proof of this, many evidences exist around the temples even today. But now removing the name of this city after the name of Ahilya Devi’s adorable Shiva and renaming the city after mother Ahilyabai would be an insult to both her adorable Shiva and Shiva’s servant mother Ahilyabai, or only the government should know the respect.
